Cold Brew

Cold brewing is a method of brewing that combines ground coffee and cool water and uses time instead of heat to extract the flavor. It is brewed in small batches and steeped for as long as 48 hours. The resulting Cold Brew coffee concentrate is used to make our new Cold Brew Iced Coffee beverage. Cold Brew is best served unsweetened.

Cold Brew vs. Iced Coffee

Cold Brew is made without heat, which creates lower acidity for a smoother, naturally sweet taste. Iced Coffee is brewed double strength then cooled, which creates a refreshing, lighter body.



Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew is made with Starbucks Cold Brew over ice and topped with our house-made vanilla sweet cream, which floats on top of the beverage before beautifully cascading down.

After handcrafting the Cold Brew recipe, baristas perfect the pour by pulling the tap and allowing the Cold Brew coffee to mix with nitrogen to deliver an entirely new cold coffee with smooth, creamy texture. Nitro Cold Brew is cold right out of the tap and served unsweetened without ice.
